Atlético Madrid host Lleida in the Copa del Rey on Tuesday in what is essentially a formality of a football match.
Atlético steamrolled their way to victory in the first leg last week, overcoming a sluggish start to win 4-0 at Camp d’Esports. Diego Godín and Fernando Torres scored in the first half, and substitutes Diego Costa and Antoine Griezmann polished off the result in the second half, meaning this second leg should be very, very low-stress.
Simeone has called up a few B team players for this match, most notably full back Sergi González, center back Antonio Montoro and winger Roberto Olabe. However, the squad is mostly made up of senior players, and it’s expected the XI will be heavy on first team names — Simeone has already said Vitolo will make start and Costa will play, too.
Moyá; Juanfran, Savić, Lucas, Sergi González; Augusto, Gabi, Carrasco, Vitolo; Gameiro, Torres.
Atlético 3-0 Lleida.
